Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

NAME = MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTS

SPECIES = ANDROID
UNIQUENESS = COMMON SQUAD (3)
CLASS = CONSTRUCTS
PERSONALITY = SUBSERVIENT

SIZE/HEIGHT = SMALL 2

LIFE = 1

MOVE = 5
RANGE = 3
ATTACK = 2
DEFENSE = 2

POINTS = 40

DISENGAGE

Mechanical Constructs are never attacked when leaving an engagement.

EXPERT CLIMBING
When moving up levels of height to move onto a space with Mechanical Constructs, do not count spaces for the first two levels and only count one space for each two levels after the first two. You may ignore Mechanical Constructs' height when climbing. Mechanical Constructs never take falling damage or major falling damage.

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

Best part the whole squad is only $0.35. Picked up these guys a year ago and there are three on each and different styles/colors to choose.



Hauberk Battle Armor #016 Mechwarrior Dark Age
Mechwarrior: Dark Age



Purifier Battle Armor #031 MechWarrior Counterassault
Mechwarrior: Counterassault

There are about a dozen different colors and they are all the perfect size for a bunch of small minion robots.

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

This was already discussed and voted on in the other thread so here are the results so far...

40 points seems really good for this version.

NAME OF THE TEST UNIT Gizmo-Bots


Army Test X
- Does it pass, Yes or No? no
- What should be the unit's point value?inconclusive
- Give a brief overview. as a common squad they are pretty simple. there main purpose is to fill space and clog the map up so I just want to get a baseline as Gizmo will pick up the slack in cost. This test was somewhat useful but only in telling me what I didn't like.
Map:Broken Skyline
Units: Gizmo-bots x2 (80) vs Antman Pym (30) + 5 Fire Ant Swarms (80)
Spoiler Alert!



Army Test 2
- Does it pass, Yes or No? yes
- What should be the unit's point value?40
- Give a brief overview. Now they feel more like what I want. Minor annoyances that wil make you waste an OM attacking them before you get to the real targets but with the staying power of tin cans.
Map:Broken Skyline
Units: Gizmo-bots x2 (80) vs Antman Pym (30) + 5 Fire Ant Swarms (80)
Spoiler Alert!



Army Test 3
- Does it pass, Yes or No? yes
- What should be the unit's point value?40
- Give a brief overview. This one started with Ants' looking like they were going to run away with it winning initiative the first three round but the bots's came back with a rally to take it with one bot left.
Map:Broken Skyline
Units: Gizmo-bots x2 (80) vs Antman Pym (30) + 5 Fire Ant Swarms (80)
Spoiler Alert!

Recap:




Should Poison sting on Fire Ant Swarms work on androids? Currently it does.

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

Are you going to cut those off and rebase 1 per base or is the idea to have 3 per base/hex, 3 in a squad, so really 9 toys total but they only count as 3 figures? I think I'd just buy the sets of 3 and leave them as 3 to a base. That way they look better on the board in terms of space. If you only had one of those 3 per hex that would be a lot of open space and it would seem odd that you couldn't move though them without getting stopped.

I rebased them. I bought one of each of the ones I listed above and turned them into two squads. They are only $0.35 though so you can do what you like. I used smaller clear bases that I was experimenting with. They came out alright.

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

What name are we going with here? The thread says Gizmo-Bots, but the unit is named Mechanical Construct Decoy.

Should their class be Construct?

What's the reasoning behind 2 range? Normally we only use ranges that short for stretchy/shape-shifting type characters.

They are armed robots and they are small 1 height robots. scale wise a range 2 is equivalent to about 4-5 on a full sized figure. Being sized of 1 I didn't want them to be worthless when they couldn't attack a figure on the next hex because it's not technically engaged. Therefore I went with 2...could be 3 but I don't want them to be a full ranged squad with 4 or 5.

Mechanical Construct maybe but the Decoy part should be dropped. We went a different direction with the bots. I'm not even sold on the Construct part honestly. The Gizmo-Bot was what my son calls them so when I started the thread it must have been in my head.

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

That explanation for 2 range works for me.

I actually kind of like the name Gizmo-Bots. Not sure if it's thematic to the comics at all though...

Re: Book of Gizmo-bots (Initial Testing)

Every time I see them I think they should double nicely for the Toyman, so I think it would be nice it they had a more generic name.
